    Loud "helicopter" sound from fan below frunk (cold weather)

    Its related to the fan hitting the shroud. It can be caused by ice buildup or a loose balancing weight. If it was in your garage its probably a fan blade weight. Its an easy fix for service.

    Any Model 3 with new projector headlights in the USA?

    I saw a new model 3 on the 101 freeway in Sherman Oaks this week with the new headlights. I noticed the change right away. They looked good, slightly noticeable but definitely not obvious to anyone other than a enthusiast.

    Model 3 New Power Trunk Photo (Fremont Factory)

    When these cars are delivered the black trim is covered in white plastic with the the exception of the rear triangle window trim. That rear piece is not covered.

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    No, its for winter times when weather is very cold. I live in Los Angeles and my wife's car has a heated steering wheel. It is nice a few months of the year when its cold in the morning. Like below 45º. It gets warm but not hot and combined with the heated seats it warms you up fast before...

    120v Mobile Charger reducing amps

    Thank you for this info. I had no idea that there was a red light and that it indicates a code. Today I was planning to go take a look at the light to see exactly what the problem was. But, it stayed below 100 degrees in the valley and the charger never dropped below 12amps. So I am...

    120v Mobile Charger reducing amps

    Wow, I did not know there were temp sensors in all 3 parts. It is plugged in with direct sunlight and 100*+ temperature. So that makes sense that it works fast during the early morning and afternoon but slows down during the hottest part of the day.

    120v Mobile Charger reducing amps

    To be honest, I don’t really charge at home. I work 60 hours a week and with a 35 mile round trip commute, charging at work 12 hours daily should be all I need. So I guess everything is working as designed. Is the reduction in amps because of the temperature of the mobile charger body, or the...

    120v Mobile Charger reducing amps

    I am having trouble determining why my Tesla mobile charger is reducing the amps while charging on 120v. I charge while at work. I work 12 hour shifts and I am using a 120v 15 amp standard outlet. When I plug in the app shows I am charging at 122v 12/12amp and getting 5 mi / hour. Then a few...

    Redesign? New frunk, headlights and power trunk?

    These were not the wide EU plates. These were the width of the US license plate holes. But they appeared to be too short for the bottom holes. They would only connect to the top 2 license plate holes (or connect to another bigger bracket).

    Redesign? New frunk, headlights and power trunk?

    Today I saw about 5 car haulers on the I5 traveling from Fremont to Los Angeles all hauling model 3 with black trim. One thing I was surprised to see is that they all had a small black rectangular license plate bracket bolted to the center of the front bumper. This means that if you want to...

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    I saw a delivery of new model 3s being unloaded in Los Angeles today with the black trim and the new console. One other new addition I noticed is that there is a black rectangular license plate bracket screwed into the center of the front bumper. Yes bolted in to the center, not under the front...

    EAP (Enhanced Auto Pilot) for $4k. Who’s in?

    Now that I own EAP and it’s locked to my particular car I wonder if my insurance will add the additional $4000 to my car’s policy. I hate to think that someone could crash into me and total the car and I’m out the $4000.

    EAP (Enhanced Auto Pilot) for $4k. Who’s in?

    I purchased EAP today while at work. I used NoAP on the way home and was very happy with it. The lane change is great. Worth the money IMO.

    EAP (Enhanced Auto Pilot) for $4k. Who’s in?

    It will probably not be available on October 1. They add stuff like this at the end of the quarter to boost revenue if they are falling short of Wall Street expectations. It may show up again in future quarters if they need a quickly boost in sales revenue.

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    I have seen that report too. I took delivery today (9/9) of my Model 3 LR AWD. It did not have the new button icons. It did not have the electronic trunk lifts or the new headlights. The delivery experience was good. They set up a "pop-up delivery center" in Sherman Oaks due to the high...

    There are a few changes that are coming but there is no way of knowing when they will all be added. Probably some will be added over the next 3 months. I would assume all changes would be completed be end of year. But none of these changes are related to the Battery Day presentation. Things...

    Hit & Run Southern California / Pasadena - Ameriprise Insurance / Tesla Service?

    This is interesting because I was considering switching to Connect insurance today. I got a quote and the premium is about $900 cheaper per year than my current auto insurance. Currently my wife and I use California Casualty insurance but we have never had to file a claim. $900 is a big...

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    Do I have a heat pump?

    This video shows the heat pump in the Model Y. The first thing you notice is that the chiller is moved to the passenger side and the heat pump has a large orange Power wire on the front. The model 3 a/c compressor has the chiller on the driver side and the compressor is incased in a black...

    I am torn because I love the model y black trim and I wanted to wait until the Model 3 offered the black trim to order. But in July I was tired of waiting and ordered a 3.

    Redesign? New frunk, headlights and power trunk?

    According to some “insiders” on Twitter (back in July) there was a planned plant shutdown the first week of August. The rumor was that they had some redesigns including updating the model 3 to use the same battery packs as the Model Y. This means the model 3 packs would have to use the same...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    I ordered a LR AWD on 7/25 as well and I got a text today saying it would be ready 4-8 weeks from today. So Tesla is probably going to jam out the orders the last week of September to impact the Q3 earnings report just like they did the last week of June.

    Is 8-12 Week Delivery Estimate accurate these days?

    I ordered a LR AWD on 7/25 and it had a 5-9 week wait when I ordered. Today I got the text saying it would be another 4-8 weeks from today. During the last week of June we saw a huge push to deliver every order before midnight June 30 so they could increase the Q2 deliveries. I think we will...

    Haven’t heard anything from Tesla

    It’s supply and demand. Tesla cannot build cars fast enough to keep up with the demand. They are spending all of their money, time and effort on manufacturing. No need to waste time and effort on people who already bought a car when there is a 4-8 week back order for people saying “please take...

    Model 3 Heatpump?

    There are rumors of a 1 week long assembly line shutdown soon. I would be interested in seeing if they add the heatpump, octovalve and allow the Model 3 and Y to have the exact same parts. In other words, the battery pack will be swap-able between cars. This could cut down on cost for Tesla...
